2019 Season. Blue Makaira is currently undergoing her winter maintenance and will be back in the water in early May ready for our clients to start fishing from mid-May. If you have not booked then please email info@atlanticbluemarlin.com to secure your dates.

Madeira offered some great fishing over the 2017 & 2018 season with good catches of Blue Marlin. Blue Makaira’s average weight of Blue Marlin recorded at 570lbs for 2017 and just over 650lbs for 2018 so we are in high hope for a good 2019 season. With some 100kg+ Big Eye and Yellow Fin Tuna thrown into the variety of the catch it should be a productive year. Madeira also had a few Blue Fin Tuna for 2018, so we should hope for an increase in their number for 2019.

Blue Makaira recorded the highest catch of Blue Marlin of all of the islands charter boats for 2018 and 2017, and recorded a win of the 32nd Blue Marlin World Cup in 2016 with a fish of 983lbs (446kg).

Big Game Fishing
in the coastal waters of Madeira on ‘Blue Makaira’

 

Since the 80’s the island of Madeira off Portugal has been considered one of the best places in the World’s oceans to catch a grander Blue Marlin.

 

I am Captain Nuno Goncalves and I would like to welcome you to the opportunity to fish with us on ‘Blue Makaira’; a Big Game fishing boat working from Calheta, Madeira.

Madeira, a European island in the mid-Atlantic, is renowned for producing some of the best ‘Big Game fishing’ the World has to offer. The very size of the fish are the subject of dreams, with the average Atlantic Blue Marlin caught from our water being over 650lbs, and one in ten being a Grander, a fish of over 1000lbs. The records speak for themselves; Madeira winning the ‘Blue Marlin World Cup’ five times since its inception.

On the 4th July 2016 Captain Nuno captained Blue Makaira to win the ‘Blue Marlin World Cup’ with a Blue Marlin of 983lbs.Incredibly, this fish was the fourth-largest ever caught in World Cup history, surpassed only by the three thousand-pound-plus “granders” caught in 2010, 2004 and 1993. In another notable twist, Blue Makaira’s Capt. Nuno was the also on the winning boat for the 2015 World Cup.

 

In addition to the great Blue Marlin fishing found off the coast of Madeira, there is also White Marlin, Spearfish, Big Eye Tuna, Blue Fin Tuna, Albacore, Dorado and Wahoo to be caught, all great sport, in this spectacular Big Game Fishing destination.

 

Whether you are an experienced Game Fisher chasing that World record, fisherman hunting the moment of a lifetime, or novice, then you can expect that the Captain, crew and owner will make every endeavour to ensure your experience is fruitful, comfortable and safe aboard ‘Blue Makaira’, as we, like you, are fisherman.
